James Newby was nominated by the Barbican Hall for the European Concert Hall Organisation Rising Star scheme and will be presented by them in recitals throughout Europe in the 2022-23 season. His London recital programme on 7 October at Milton Court is based on his debut solo album I wonder as I wander, on the BIS label, which won the Diapason d’Or Découverte and was described in Gramophone Magazine as “a performance that sets the tone, announcing Newby as an impressive artist”.
This is the second recital in a series which sees him appearing in the following venues:
Luxembourg Philharmonie; London Milton Court, Barbican; Müpa Budapest; Vienna Musikverein; Sage, Gateshead; Elbphilharmonie Hamburg; Stockholm Konserthuset; Dortmund Konzerthaus; Lisbon Gulbenkian Foundation; Baden-Baden Festspielhaus; Birmingham Symphony Hall; Barcelona Palau de la Música; Porto Casa da Música; Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Cologne Philharmonie.
This autumn James also makes his French opera debut appearing in Strasbourg at the Opéra National du Rhin in the French premiere of Franz Schreker’s Der Schatzgräber directed by Christoph Loy.← Back to news page
